Kinsale Golf Course

Kinsale Club Crest

Kinsale Golf Club comprises the old 9-hole course at Ringenane, which overlooks the sea and has panoramic views. It has a fully licensed clubhouse, which is renowned for its friendly atmosphere, "crac" and good food. Visitors are welcome all year round.

The new course at Farrangalway is an 18-hole newly constructed championship course, which is a real challenge to the serious golfer. It has a two-story imposing clubhouse, which opened in 1995. Both courses are kept in excellent condition all year round and are a pleasure to play.

History of Kinsale

Instituted 1879 affiliated 1912

The 2nd Battalion Kings Own Borderers, laid out an eight-hole course at Musketry Camp, about four miles from Kinsale, when the regiment was stationed there from April, 1883 to the Autumn of 1884.

The "Sportsman's Holiday Guide" 1897 records "The Kinsale Golf Club links are situated on the glacis of Charles Fort and command extensive views of the Atlantic, Kinsale Harbour and town, the Royal Naval Reserve Battery, etc. The course is one of nine-holes and is about one mile in circuit". There was no clubhouse and the Kinsale Arms Hotel looked after the needs of golfers.

The minute books of the present club only go back to 1932 and the club lists its foundation date as 1912 with a nine-hole course at Ringenane however, there is little doubt that golf was played at Kinsale as far back as 1883. Kinsale is now a twenty-seven-hole course.
